Conor Noonan emailed me indicating he is willing to help out with games in the future. Awesome!

Update: Saints lose.
Alright. Watched the game last night at Simpson Shelter. It was a great comeback attempt by Favre. Unfortunately, the Vikings lost. There was standing room only in the small television room by the entrance. Wish the game had gone another way, but Vikings will just have to regroup.
Looks like Eliza Dushku went. No surprise, she’s a big fan. Of course, I’m in the NFC and sticking with the Vikings.
I went to downtown target to try to shop my gift certificate ($40). Again, thanks Target! I decided I would check for Dollhouse on DVD. SOLD OUT!
Went to the new Uptown Diner today. I was going to Branch 3, but it is closed on Sunday. I forgot so I ended up heading downtown. Nowhere really to go in the morning on Sunday. Before deciding where to eat (Sharing and Caring Hands or House of Charity), I opted to get together with a friend at the New Uptown Diner. His treat. Appreciate the Tex Mex and coffee. Thanks. After that, it was off to Cavalry church.
I spent some time in Dunn Bros on 3rd street in Mpls. They are running Iceweasel on network computers. (Nice). Anyway, they allowed customers to get free refills on all their coffee for people staying at the store. In addition to that, they let me switch the KIND from Colombia to Peru no charge. Had too much coffee. They decided to close early yesterday to spend time with friends and family, but gave everyone a free muffin to go. Cool. Appreciate.
Cavalry Church MLK Day update.
The organizers are still trying to confirm that Rep. Keith Ellison will attend the event to give the MLK day speech. The second big hurdle they are overcoming is the fact that Cub foods is not going to be providing the $500 in donations they usually do.
They are hoping some top musical talent will be at the event. However, the penny pinching means they are looking for all kinds of volunteer help.
Anyone interested in helping out should contact Jill Sondergaard. firstname.lastname@example.org
I went to the Timberwolves game last night. I spoke to Mr. Conor Noonan, the business development representative from the Minnesota Timberwolves to express thanks for the tickets I received at the St. Stephen’s shelter Christmas party.
The game itself was very enjoyable and I met many enthusiastic fans. I also spoke with volunteers from BPO who were raising money through concession sales for their daughters who are engaged in dancing.
The Timberwolves won.
Unfortunately, I could not stay until the end of the game. I have to check in no later than 10 pm. I left during the 4th quarter to make it back to the shelter on time. This is actually later than most people staying in shelters. Check in times can be as early as 5:30-6:30 pm. Many people in the shelters may not have been able to attend the game last night. (A day game give away might be more helpful). Hopefully in the future, the shelters can work with the Timberwolves to create more opportunities. Also, most people have to carry their backpacks throughout the day, so the organization should plan accordingly.
I received two tickets, but gave one of the tickets away to another homeless person.
Mr. Noonan said there could be more tickets forthcoming. Cheers.
If you are new to the blog, you can read about my story here. This covers the basics of my homelessness and other situations. My experiences have not been great. Nevertheless, I am sure there are many people much worse off than me. At least I am doing what I want- which is trying to save the television show Dollhouse for the woman I love.
As I have repeatedly explained, I am not trying to make money. I love Eliza Dushku and am trying to save her television show.
If you are reading this, good news- it means you are “alive” enough to notice things in your social environment.
I need your help to save Dollhouse.
Please let others know about this effort. Please help me save the Dollhouse.
